Is true love really like this?

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rose lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov’d
I never writ, nor man ever lov’d.

Sonnet 116, ShakespeareThis is a sonnet which touched me a lot and it was shown to me by a person I admire the most.. I have always wondered if really true love could be like this.. This is love in the romantic sense ๐Ÿ™‚

God’s love is described in 1 corinthians 13 and I know that this does pale in comparison with the description of God’s love. However I just added it because its something which did inspire me a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
